Re: Tue 13th Nov - An Emergency in London!

I’m already on the list, but confirming same.

May I invite a guest, Dave A., who is the husband of a friend of the wife? And I’ll bring a magnum.

Are Eq and Ec not included because Eufemia doesn't (often? ever?) produce VP?

Question posed primarily due to the unique difficulty with naming the split house(s).
As you say: no VP, no need. Do suggest — though it’s too late to go in the canonical list in The Book.

Perhaps somebody else could do the traditional call for port enthusiasts?

Re: 2011 Horizontal - London, 23rd April 2051

This thread was started just over five years ago. It seems appropriate that people should, once every half decade, have to re-confirm their likely attendance, longevity permitting. Those who do not, before 2 nd February 2019, re-confirm their intention to attend, will be deemed to have lost interest...

Re: Thu 14th March 2019, Broadbent Port, at the B&F

Do you have any guidance to give as to the theme for the second course? Should we all bring an extra bottle (and so consume 21 bottles between us)? Should we choose a partner and negotiate with said partner what we bring between the two of us? Are we to be given free rein under the theme of "...old...

Dates permitting, we might be joined by Bartholomew Broadbent himself. I have proposed a course of his Ports, and then a course of something older from our cellars. We have a Broadbent 1997 that we may contribute with if there is room for us at the table and if the date is suitable for us. Sten, Ste...

Re: Broadbent Port

In gathering information about a new Port name little seen this side of the Atlantic — Broadbent — a tasting was kindly offered. And accepted. One bottle of each of Bb00, Bb03, Bb07, Bb11 and Bb15 are to be sent to me.

When?
